Second Time Around Improves Test Results

Chicot Memorial

JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) –The Mississippi Department of Education says students fared better in the second year of a new standardized test than they did in the first, especially in math. The results are from last spring’s Mississippi Academic Assessment Program, the second time the state has given those tests to students in grades 3-8 and high school. State Superintendent Carey Wright says she’s pleased with the results. 35 percent of students scored at proficient or advanced levels in reading and writing English, up from 33 percent last year and 37 percent of students scoring proficient or higher in math, compared to 31 percent last year.
